Sesame Workshop has announced that it’s entering the podcast world in a new collaboration with Audible. Sesame Street will launch a podcast on October 15, called The Sesame Street Podcast with Foley & Friends. The 15 episodes will be just 15 minutes long, perfect for kids and family, and hosted by a new character named Foley.
The podcast will be available in the Audible Plus catalog starting October 15, with new episodes released Tuesdays and Thursdays. Each one will revolve around a different preschool-friendly topic, from vehicles to birthdays to learning the alphabet.
“Sesame Workshop has been one of the most respected names in family entertainment for over 50 years, and we’re honored to bring this unique Sesame Street podcast to listeners,” said Rachel Ghiazza, Executive Vice President, Head of US Content at Audible. “Audible offers immersive audio entertainment for a wide array of listeners, and we’re thrilled to expand our children’s content with this exceptional release. The Sesame Street Podcast with Foley & Friends delivers what parents need most now: educational entertainment that little ones will love, guaranteed.”
“As families’ media habits evolve, Sesame Workshop is ready to meet them wherever they are with engaging content that sparks playful learning. Together with Audible, we’re creating a rich audio-only world that will come to life in kids’ imaginations,” said Scott Chambers, Sesame Workshop’s Senior Vice President/General Manager, Educational Media and Licensing, North America. “We can’t wait for our friends at home to explore the sounds of Sesame Street in a whole new way. Welcome to the neighborhood, Foley!”
